    This is 13" Gurkha Service No.1 Bone & Wooden Handle Kukri, made by Ex Gurkha khukuri House, Nepal. The blade is same as the the gurkha issue blade Service No.1 and Service No.1 khukuri (kukri) is most common and popular khukuri amongst the Gurkha soldiers. This khukuri (kukri) is provided to all the British Gurkha soldiers during enlistment and is retained by them throughout their army career. Inspected regularly by an officer, this khukuri (kukri) is usually used during Parade and Duty. This Service No.1 khukuri (kukri) has Recruiting Years and Country's name engrave on the left side of the blade. This engraving on the blade started because in the olden days the Gurkha Soldier used to forget their enlistment year due to too many wars. All Khukuris have two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a blunt steel called "chakmak" for sharpening the blade or for striking spark from flint and a little knife known as "karda" used for skinning small animals such as rabbits. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade..
